Changing Old Perceptions

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This past quarter, villagers in Dhoker Jhara have been working hard on income generation.  Among them, Mohit, started a men’s hair salon. He had been afraid to run his own salon because people used to say that tribal villagers are not allowed to cut hair. Only some castes could cut hair. After education, villagers now understand that anyone may open a salon. By seeing Mohit’s example, other villagers were encouraged to increase their income generation.

Breaking Barriers to Change

Kharibari Village, India

 

Last quarter, we pursued practical work in Kharibari Village. We had already installed one street light in the middle of the village and were getting ready for another one, but one panchayat member suggested we approach the local MLA for solar lights instead. So, one fine evening, the villagers got together to write an application for solar lights, along with a culvert for the village.

Women of Ezbit el Amir

 

During the last three months, we visited 13 families in their homes, and we did follow-ups for the sewing machines project. We fixed four sewing machines and helped two ladies find factories that would hire them. Next quarter, we're going to keep doing follow-ups for the sewing machines project. We're also going to help them by fixing their machines and giving them new ideas for sewing.
